US short line railroad opens liquid transload terminal
Delmarva Central Railroad (DCR) in the USA has elivered the first railcar of liquid feed ingredients for animal health and nutrition company Novus to the newly opened Seaford Transload Terminal, Delaware.
A roadway was built adjacent to an existing rail siding in the facility to allow direct railcar-to-truck transloading of liquid ingredients. Railcars are loaded in Texas and spotted at the Seaford Transload upon arrival.
DCR provides daily rail service and a direct connection via Norfolk Southern to the broader North American rail network. DCR is a subsidiary of short line railroad operator Carload Express and operates more than 300 km of rail line in Delaware, Maryland, and Virginia. (ben)
